It appears on Roman currency, at the end of documents made public by inscription in stone or metal, in dedications of monuments and public works, and was emblazoned on the vexilloids of the Roman legions. The phrase commonly appears in Roman political, legal and historical literature, including the speeches of Cicero and ''Ab Urbe Condita Libri (Livy)|Ab Urbe Condita Libri'' ("Books from the Founding of the City") of Livy.
